Robert Beaucage’s horror film Spike is finally making festival rounds this year. You’ll find some clips over at the official MySpace with more at the official website. More on this soon! In a woodland location crepuscular and foreign, “The Girl” and her three friends stand stranded in a habitat not too dissimilar to that found in many a nursery rhyme. Like the content of such morality poems, this prelapsarian area has its own monster, the same beast that forced their car off-road. Yet far from being a monster from the Id, “Spike” originates from a more corporeal realm: The Girl’s suburban childhood. Robert Beaucage’s debut feature maneuvers through the dark tensions of a beast’s love and the depths to which a beauty may sink to evade it.
